I was driving home from work this morning, and I was boosting in 2nd gear. At the top of second, I heard a loud "POOWWW...tssssssssssssssssssss" and my car shut off. I rolled up to a red light and tried to crank the car, it started for a second and died again. The light turned green, and I tried to start it again. I was able the get the car moving enough to get out of the intersection, but it was driving like ASS, no power and lumpy as shit.

I got out of the car and popped the hood and I saw......




























that one of the couplers had blown loose...the one that connects to the throttle body! I was like "PHEW!!" Oh well, just wanted to share my little scare with you guys.

Thats a pretty common problem I blew my pipe off coming from the intercooler on my car and broke the clamp when I was at the dyno. I was pushing 11 psi though :devil:

Use a socket wrench to tighten down your hose clamps, you can't get the extra *umpf* you need out of a flathead to do that. Ask Rulez, he's the "Blow off" king :lol:
